Tanjuro Kamado was the father of Tanjiro Kamado, Nezuko Kamado, Takeo Kamado, Hanako Kamado, Shigeru Kamado, and Rokuta Kamado, and the spouse of Kie Kamado. Tanjuro was afflicted with a disease that caused his skin to become dull, pale, and frail. He shares the same dark red eyes, black hair with red tips, and forehead scar as his son Tanjiro. Tanjuro was capable of employing the Sun Breathing as taught to him by the Hinokami Kagura, who passed down the dance and Yoriichi’s earrings to his son. Tanjuro’s first name is composed of the characters for “charcoal,” “ten,” and “son,” which when combined form the male suffix “Jr.”
The Demon Slayer anime has a sizable fanbase, which has resulted in a slew of guesses and fan theories. One of them is whether or not Tanjurou Kamado, Tanjiro’s father, is a Hashira/Demon Slayer. Tanjiro’s father is seen teaching Tanjirou the Sun/Fire God Dance. But, as a child, Tanjiro didn’t quite grasp all of the steps, and as he grew older, he forgot about them.
Who is Tanjiro’s Father in Demon Slayer?
Tanjiro’s father is not a demon slayer, to put it succinctly. Muzan does not recognize Tanjurou in his flashbacks. However, it was via his contacts to the world of demon slayers that he learned the dance of the fire god skill. Tanjurou was born almost 300-400 years before the Demon Slayer who defeated Muzan. He was the first person to use the Breathing Technique. Yoriichi Tsugikuni was his name. Allowing him to see every being’s blood flow, joint movements, and muscles. When they battled, this “defect/talent” allowed him to see through Muzan’s secret and beat him to death. Tsugikuni’s breathing technique was the very first breathing technique ever adopted by mankind. The Sun/Fire God Dance, also known as Sun Breathing, was the name given to it. Yoriichi encountered the peaceful family of Kamado Sumiyoshi and Suyako, ancestors of Tanjirou Kamado, during his final days in the demon corps. Yoriichi and his efforts to save the world inspired the Kamado couple greatly.
Tanjuro Kamado Appearance
He was gifted with the ability to use the “Transparent World” technique from birth. Tsugikuni could see the world through X-ray vision with this approach.
Tanjuro donned the same clothing as his son, except instead of dark turquoise and black, he wore an orange and black striped haori. When he was alive, he wore earrings that were passed down from his ancestor to Tanjiro. Tanjuro dressed up as an Iwami Kagura dancer, wearing a long-sleeved dark brown dress with gold and blood red frames and a wide blindfold covering his entire face with the characters for flames imprinted on it when performing the Kagura ceremonial dance. He also brandished a wooden blade that resembled the characters for “the rise of the sun.”
